What does getting ready for a national pageant really look like? What kind of hard work and preparation goes into such a big competition?
Find your answers below.
On a typical weekday, a day in the life of a Miss World Canada delegate (at least for me) looks like this.
I will wake up at around 6:30 or 7:00a.m. and get a workout in at home. I would then get ready for work and spend the day there. After work, I will reach out to local businesses seeking sponsorships or help fundraising for the Children’s Wish Foundation, and spend some time working on my talent piece. Once I feel confident about the practice I’ve completed, I will practice my walk for swimwear and evening gown, and read (and practice) some potential interview questions.
The weekends often look a little different because there is more time available for pageant prep.
On the weekends, I will get up at around 8 or 9 and get a workout in, then get ready for the day. I will practice my talent, walk, and interview questions.
After these preparations are done, I might sit down and write a blog post about the week or record a video to share on YouTube or Facebook. Alternatively, I might attend a fundraiser that I’ve planned for Children’s Wish or an event I’ve been invited to.
Then I go home and get ready for bed, and get up and do it all again the next day.
Getting ready for Miss World Canada can be very time-consuming and a lot of work, but the preparations force you to work on every aspect of yourself to become the best version of you that you can be. This is the beauty of pageants – they celebrate women for being well-rounded, accomplished individuals. It isn’t about who is prettiest or who looks best in a swimsuit. It’s about who can work hardest to become her very best self.
